MMA fighter from OCG controlled by Rovshan Lenkoransky detained in Odessa
He and another detained athlete are accused of a robbery with shooting.
In Odessa, law enforcers have detained an MMA fighter from Dagestan and a previously convicted Odessa resident for a robbery with shooting, as reported on the website of the National Police of Ukraine's Internal Security Department.
According to the investigation, in late spring, the two detainees had fired shots at a car with two passengers on Gagarinskoe plato street. The driver and passenger were seriously injured, but they managed to survive.
It is noted that the detainees – 30-year-old native of Dagestan (a professional MMA fighter) and a 31-year-old Odessa boxer with a previous conviction – had been members of a crime group previously controlled by late thief in law Rovshan Lenkoransky, killed in Istanbul.
The Dagestan native and Odessa resident were detained as part of a special operation; they actively resisted. Searches have been held in their place of residence, resulting in the seizure of three pistols and cartridges, a smooth-bore hunting rifle, five mobile phones, and two elite foreign cars.
The detained men face an imprisonment for a term of three to seven years.

After scaring Dagestan with inspections, arrests, and searches, the interdepartmental commission of the Prosecutor General’s Office and ICR has identified key priorities for the regional watchdog authority. After the crackdown on the old clan-based system, the management reforms became more constructive – however, another wave of criminal cases, terminations, and arrests is expected in the republic. The CrimeRussia was figuring out what other Dagestani officials are currently at risk.
